Connecticut Magazine: June 2016

WC-Press-CTMagazine-06012016“Walrus + Carpenter in Bridgeport’s trendy Black Rock neighborhood is a perfect combination of rustic, chic gastropub (think scuffed hardwood floors and pressed-tin ceiling) with traditional Southern comfort food (think fried chicken, collard greens and, of course, barbecue).

There are several options from the restaurant’s back-lot smoker like maple-bourbon baby back ribs, pit-smoked pork shoulder or jezebel spare ribs. You can also opt for larger meals designed to be split among the table like The Notorious P.I.G., which serves four and includes treasures like maple pork belly, andouille sausage and so much more. You definitely won’t be hungry when you’re done.

But that’s just scratching the surface. A lengthy list of small and large plates aim to please. Sides include baked mac and cheese, creamed kale and asparagus. Start your meal with a few scrumptious snacks for the table like deviled eggs or deep-fried, blue cheese-stuffed olives. And of course there are a wide variety of craft beers on tap, a nice wine list and a full bar.”

WC-Press-OmNomCT-06032016“This family-owned and operated American restaurant, Walrus + Carpenter, takes barbecue to the next level. The smell of slow cooked meats completely fill the room and the beer is constantly flowing. Although you could go there for dinner and have a barbecue platter, you absolutely need to go for brunch in order to have the chicken and waffles. Let me break this down for you: Chicken. Waffles. Sriracha Honey Butter. That dish hits all the flavors.”
